Sweet Root Africa - Poem by George Egba

We will return to south Africa
We will remember the king of Africa
We will do this for Africa
We will look at the back of Africa
We will honor today for Africa
We will proclaim (A) affection for Africa
We will fight for (F) freedom for Africa
We will seek for (R) restoration for Africa
We will live for (I) increase for Africa
We will stand for (C) courage for Africa
We will be proud of (A) attraction for Africa
We will emulate the noble Shepherd of Africa
We will be true sheep of Africa
We will build and serve Africa
We will learn and teach the heritage of Africa
We will do this in all the tribes of Africa
We return to the land of wrestling Africa
We return to the land of hunting Africa
We will return to the land of swimming Africa
We will return to the land of black beauty Africa
We will return to the land of peace and unity Africa
We will denounce the thieves of Africa
We will promote the color of Africa
We will project the flag of Africa
We will keep it as one dear Africa
We will love, live and die for our root Africa
